The British Budget Cuts And Our Security

Pay close attention to what’s going on in the UK.  The relatively puny cuts in military budgets there will mean larger cuts in domestic programs, and if the Republicans win on November 2, we can expect attacks on Social Security here. And even if the GOP doesn’t win, the Catfood Commission will probably avoid military cuts and endorse cuts to Social Security.  We need the 25% solution. Paul Krugman today in the Times (www.nytimes.com) also talks about the Brits misguided program which seems to be getting its advice directly from Andrew Mellon.
